The ex daytime hotel Cobianchi becomes Expo in città lounge (Expo in the city Lounge), a stable reference point in the heart of the city for operators, artists and public throughout the entire semestre of Expo 2015. The Council of Milan has infact decided to assign the space to the cultural association Elita to transform the ex hotel situated in Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, 900 metres squared in the very centre, a space for events, meetings and conferences.
Expo in the city loung will be the centre of a continous programme of cultural appointments: shows, exhibitions, events. But also a space dedicated to socialisation, to service activities and an information point for the Expo in the city programme, a privileged place of meeting for all operators and organisers of events. In the ex hotel services for the public will be available - wi-fi, comfort zone, shop area, bar - and international events in collaboration with various delegations present in Milan during Expo, will be organised. The space will be available every day, including late hours.
The initiative is part of Expo in città, the project by the Council of Milan and the Chamber of Commerce which co-ordinates and manages a schedule of cultural, touristic and commercial events that will animate the life of the city during the six months of the Exhibition. The Expo in the city Lounge will open anticipatedly to the public during the Salone del Mobile (14/19 April), to continue, during the 6 months of Expo, with a rich programme of meetings and conferences.
